Always Must Do Everything Correctly…


I’ve been watching Grey Gardens nonstop for the past 72 hours. I’m unsure about whether these two women are completely possessed by their undiagnosed schizophrenia or the sanest women I have ever observed. In any case, there is something so enviable about total surrender to a life unaffected by the world’s opinions. I can’t figure out whether these women are my terrifying failure-deterrents, or who I should strive to become. Line after unscripted line, they seem to get life just right:

Big Edie: Oh, look. That cat’s going to the bathroom right behind my portrait.

Little Edie: Ughh, how awful.

Big Edie: No, I’m glad. I’m glad somebody’s doing something what they want to do!
